July 25, 1939 – Rocanville/Welwyn, Saskatchewan November 11, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Trevor Dumville, beloved husband of Elaine Dumville (nee Brown) of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at the age of 75 years, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Trevor was born July 25, 1939 on his family’s farm located between Rocanville and Welwyn, SK. He was the youngest of five children to Charlie and Elsie Dumville. Trevor attended Cambridge school which was located on his grandfather Joseph’s farm.
Trevor met Elaine Brown in the café in Tantallon in 1955 – it was love at first sight. They married on February 20, 1960 in Tantallon, Saskatchewan.
Trevor had been involved in the car business for most of his life. His great passion was for antique autos especially Fords, but did on occasion buy a competitors vehicle because he just couldn’t resist. After retiring Trevor loved spending time with his family and restoring and showing his antique cars. Trevor and Elaine met many of their closest friends at various car club functions, shows and swap meets. Trevor always had a keen interest in preserving family history and artifacts. His father’s original farm which was homesteaded 120 years ago is still in the Dumville name today. When the Cambridge school moved to Moosomin museum it was important to Trevor to acknowledge the history of the Cambridge school so he had a plaque mounted at the original site.
Trevor’s brother Gordon was a flying officer in the RCAF in England. He died in action during WW II. Remembrance Day has always been an important day and one that he always observed by attending ceremonies and speaking with Gordon’s pilot, Captain Redge Harrison.
As well as the love of his life of 54 years Elaine, Trevor will be dearly missed by his children, Gordon (Carolyn), Brenda (Perry), and Debbie (Trevor); and his grandchildren, Dylan, Christina, Kyle, Megan, Alexandra, Lauren and Soren. He is also survived by his brothers-in-law, George Holloway, Val Pestyk, Leonard Olafson, and Larry Brown; sister-in-law Marg Dumville; as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Trevor was predeceased by his parents Charles and Elsie Dumville; his brothers, Gordon and Kenneth; and sisters, Helena and Catharine (Kay).
